    Hi Debbie, Just been looking at your website again, really splendidly laid out and such lovely poetry glorifying our Lord and Saviour.
    I was wondering if you would be so kind to help me with some advice about wordpress, whom you use for your website.
    Is it quite easy to set up your poems on it?, how much response do you get for your poetry? and is wordpress free or is it reasonable charge?
    I’ve been looking at ways to get my poetry across online, I’m on couple of poetry websites, one is fairly good and the other only a few comments. I’m also on goodreads like yourself but its not really for getting all your poetry displayed on.
    Thank you for your time, trust this finds you well and may God continue to bless you.
    Every blessing from Scotland,

    • Thank you so much. Yes I am well and blessed beyond measure. Yes it is very easy to set up. You just have to have some time to invest in learning how it works. Yes I get a good bit of traffic. But for me one heart, one soul that is touched for Jesus is enough for me. WordPress.com is free which is always a great blessings. Have fun expanding the kingdom of Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords through Christ-centered poetry. Blessings to you in Scotland.
